Gather Your Ingredients

To make the best fruit pizza, you'll need a sugar cookie dough base, cream cheese frosting, and a variety of fresh fruits like strawberries, blueberries, kiwis, and mangoes.

Prepare the Cookie Dough

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Roll out the sugar cookie dough into a large circle or rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick. Place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake the Cookie Crust

Bake the cookie dough in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. Let it cool completely on a wire rack before moving on to the next step.

Make the Cream Cheese Frosting

In a bowl, beat 8oz of softened cream cheese with 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract until smooth and creamy.

Spread the Frosting

Once the cookie crust has cooled completely, spread the cream cheese frosting evenly over the entire surface. This will act as the base for your fruit toppings.

Choose Your Fruits

Select different colorful fruits for your pizza. Popular choices include strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, mango, and raspberries. Feel free to mix and match based.

Slice the Fruits

Carefully slice your chosen fruits into thin, bite-sized pieces. For smaller fruits like blueberries and raspberries, you can leave them whole.

 Arrange the Fruit

Start placing the fruit slices on the frosted cookie crust. Arrange them in a visually appealing pattern, such as concentric circles or a rainbow design.

Chill the Pizza

Place the finished fruit pizza in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. This will allow the frosting to set and make it easier to slice and serve.

Slice and Serve

After chilling, remove the fruit pizza from the refrigerator and slice it into wedges or squares using a sharp knife.

Tips and Variations

Experiment with different fruit combinations and cookie crusts like chocolate chip or add a drizzle of honey for added sweetness.

Creating a fruit pizza is a fun and creative way to enjoy fresh fruits. With its beautiful presentation and delicious taste, it's sure to be a hit at any gathering.
